I opened my mail to find a BMI royalty statement with a check from airplay of one of my songs in a number of TV shows and films. At first I thought several songs were involved but it does appear that all this was from one song in particular.

I remember writing this in a group of several other similar styled songs. It was not, and still isn't one of my favorites in that group, however, apparently, what do I know?

This is the song that was used by film & TV

While the sun shines

Here's the details as I can best determine them. There was one song that was used. It was used, however, in at least 4 different places.

2 Canadian documentary style shows that aired on the HISTORY CHANNEL and also on the H2 channel. The shows are:
10 things you didn't know about civil rights .....and 10 things you didn't know about Texas.

These 2 shows placed over 30 cues between them.

The other shows were on the REELZCHANNEL in the following shows:
Beverly Hills Pawn and Hollywood Hillbillies with 30+ cues between them and in 3 episodes of Hillbillies. Close to 70 total cues placed in these shows.

The cues generated anywhere from 4 cents per play up to $7.63 per cue depending on the length of time the song was played in the show. 60 cents came from Canada and 6 cents from the UK.... go figure....

The song is 100% Real Band tracks mixed in Sonar.

This is cool, Herb. Thanks for sharing the info.

It is amazing that they only have to pay pennies (basically) for using your song.

And too bad your episodes aren't available on their site (others are) - maybe they will add them later... it would be cool to see (hear) after hearing it here in the Showcase...

They will likely add them when next season starts or the series is canceled.

Give it some time and they will all likely end up on netflix.... that's when I'll see them.

Very cool Herb. I like the tune and that is a powerful testimony to BIAB in itself.

Congratulations. Very authentic to the bluegrass genre and a nice song to boot.

Herb,

That is good news, I will look out for those programmes on the History channel and bore every one to death by saying I know who wrote that music grin

Well done, let us hope they pick more of your songs.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
